Abstract

Fifty (26 males, 21 female and 3 juvenile) Lyciasalamandra luschani (Luschan's salamander) collected in Antalya, were examined for helminths during 1997-2001. In this study, 3 helminth species, Aplectana acuminata, Cosmocerca longicauda and Angiostoma aspersae (Nematoda) were found. This study is the first helminthological research of Luschan's salamander in the world. This is the first time that Luschan's salamander has been shown to be the host of these parasites.
